Newark Students’ Fast Raises Hunger Awareness

Students at Newark Collegiate Academy recently took part in a "Fast for Famine" drive at school to raise awareness about hunger.

More than 150 students began a 24-hour fast on Nov. 18; the students stayed overnight at the school, where they spent their time working on charitable projects such as making blankets for the children at the Children's Hospital at Beth Israel Medical Center and sandwiches and holiday cards for families at the YMCA of Newark before their fast came to an end.
